“We are very thankful to Hunter for all of his contributions, both on and off the field,” Brewers Senior Vice President and General Manager Matt Arnold said. “While he will certainly be missed, this is an opportunity for our group of exciting young outfielders to impact our Major League team in the near future.”

This trade moves Renfroe back to Californian where he began his career. He was a member of the San Diego Padres from 2016 through 2019.

Since that time, Renfroe will now be on his fourth straight team in 2023. In 2020, he played for the Tampa Bay Rays.

Then in 2021, he played for the Boston Red Sox. Renfroe was with with Brewers in 2022 before the trade.

In his first season with the Brewers, Renfroe had .255 batting average with 29 home runs and 72 RBIs in 125 games.

He was acquired by the Brewers in a trade with the Red Sox on December 1st, 2021. In exchange, Boston received Jackie Bradley Jr., Alex Binelas, and David Hamilton.

Renfroe then re-signed with the Red Sox on March 22nd, 2022. He signed a one-year, $7.65 million deal.

Junk has appeared in seven games, including six starts, over the last two seasons. Peguero has made 16 relief appearances the last two seasons.

This is the second trade where Junk and Peguero were traded together. They were traded from the New York Yankees to the Angels on July 30th, 2021, for pitcher Andrew Heaney and cash.

Seminaris appeared in 24 games, including 21 starts in 2022. He began the season at the Single-A level and worked his way up to the Triple-A level.

“We are happy to welcome three quality young arms to our organization, two of which are already on the Major League roster and have a chance to impact our team in 2023,” Arnold added. “The ability to add pitching depth to an already strong stable of big-league arms is something we feel good about.”
